It’s crazy reading my best of 2018 post, I only started running last year! It feels like a lifetime ago.
And I hope to still improve further as time goes on. I always feel like it’s a slow process, but actually I am really happy that in the last year and however many months, I have gone from over an hour to sub 40 5km.
I don’t think I will ever be a fast runner, but I am out there doing it and that is all that really matters.
On to the best bits, top 5 this year!
This was my first ever real life 10km road race, and I was so nervous! I knocked 22 minutes off my 10km best effort!
I spent ages training for this and at first I was disappointed with the outcome, but now I couldn’t be more pleased with how it went. My first 10km race! And a PB!
It was let down by the experience of some runners reporting they did not get medals and shirts. Such a shame.
My 2nd fastest 10km, with amazing views, new friends made and a fantastic race. I’d definitely do this again.
The race organisation and marshals were superb.
This race was my first introduction to time not distance racing that I now LOVE! I had a fantastic time and the atmosphere was brilliant.
I came away with a PB for 400m, 1/2 mile and 1km.
This was a last minute decision, but it was awesome. You get to run on the track! My 2nd fastest 5km and fastest km so far.
This became my first race trail half. It was a slow one, but the event was one of the best I have done this year. In fact, I have signed up for 4 more next year!
I love the format, they have amazing flapjacks and allll the sweets at the aid station.
Bring on 2020!
